definitive track. >> the destruction could be catastrophic. think about it. we have something like in a long time. >> and governor scott declared a state of emergency for every county in florida. matthew already blamed for four deaths. >> and you have been watching this closely. we could see of impact here -- see some impact here. >> i think that direct impact will be well to the east of it's going to be the pushing force. that will impact us. that starts our weekend off. i want to remind everybody, when governor's declare states of emergency, all that does is open up funding and opportunities. it does mean the storm is imminent and coming. >> not the same as an evacuation order. >> exactly. >> but first, we have a dense fog advisories issued here. >> quite the other end of the spectrum.
as temperatures pushing into the 70s. there's where that dense fog advisories kicks off. all of the counties see there highlighted in grey. i guess, low lighted in grey with the exceptions being, lake shore, the areas north of 90 and also carol counties. here's how the visibilities expected to go tonight. you can see where we get these darker colors. that's where things get little merky. remember fogs come and god. what you leave may not be what you encounter. so just keep that in mind. you may want to check in with them. maybe adding a couple extra minutes in the morning. just to be safe. rather than sorry. the dense fog, seemingly going to be spread across the area. and i think a lot of us will have the light fog with area of dense fog possible. but by 10:00 a.m. most of the fog should be mixed out. and we shouldn't have any problems with that. high pressure is in control.
dealt with last week is out of here. thankfully, took the rain, took the clouds with it. and now as we look to the west, we are keeping an eye on a storm system that is pretty canada impressive. as far as the satellite and radar picture, this is going to trips its way across the country. late friday into early saturday. just about the time, this front comes through northeast ohio, we will have a pretty good idea as to where matthew will be along the ea this is the hurricane that everyone has been talking about. big hurricane. it's a beast as i have been saying 145-mile an hour winds now. moving to the north at 7 miles per hour. expected to kind of snake its way past haiti and cuba. but causing devastating effects there. going to spend quite some time in the bahamas. forecast tracks have shifted west slightly. throughout the day today. and then the storm is expected to kind of hug the east coast. could take an easterly turn.
but here's the thing. as that storm is expected it to come off of the east coast. our front is coming in and that will trap a lot of moisture being slung around by the hurricane. so by sunday, with the front just in to boston. and a potential masty storm off shore. our time could get soaked with the red sox. so we'll see what's going on with that. and that could definitely be a gig story for the weekend. window nation forecast has us in the 70s and don't forget, the sunny skies would certainly be nice. the fog will be with us in the morning. up around 80 and by saturday, here comes the front with cooler weather. >> all right. thank you. coming up, just three days away now from the baseball playoffs. round one, between the indians and the redd red sox. jimmy has the schedule, the game times, and a preview of the series next in sports.
indians. indians and red sox game. game one of the best of five. third pitch, thursday night at 8:08. inside the series. the red sox won the season series. four games to two. hear in cleveland and twice in boston. more wins on the road than any other team in the american lead. they had 46. but the indians had more wins by 1. overall in the season 94 winds to 93. but really, short series, or any series. it comes down to pitching and really, it comes down to young, trevor bower. here's jenson lewis. >> it stepped up so much better. i think trevor bower is pitching at home instead of fenway park. even if josh tomlin goes out there and lays a clunker, i don't think he'll do that. you have the advantage in a short series. you don't need a four starter.
may make the roster. to be able to add some length. but that sort -- shortening the game. >> but it's about the starters right away. game one thursday night. rick will go for the red sox. a young award candidates he had 22 wins on't year and you go against trevor bowerrer. and then kluven going in game two. friday afternoon, that could put them in a great position to try and get to three wins. monday the blown browns win and again, they were in position to win the game yesterday in washington. but they cannot get over the top. and i think it's because they're missing that big play maker. both on offense and on defense. somebody, that when things go wrong, when you fumble or throw an interception, the world doesn't cave in. you have a guy that goes, listen, i'll get us through this p follow me. they don't have that guy right now. so they're 0-4. which is
this difficult. it's tough. but we are -- i'm seeing a lot of young guys improve. we just not seeing what i want to see. >> it's crazy how, so many times we're up and we're in the game and beat -- and something goes wrong. >> yeah. he's right about that. >> and a tough break for this young man. austin rider. to play for the broncs and plays really well waved today by the browns. eligible to. coback after a four game suspension. he's still facing further suspension from the nfl and the browns say bye bye to him. cavs today back at practice and they're first preseason game. comes up in a couple days. on wednesday, lebron james did not play yesterday in the wine and gold scrimmage. he just sat and as you can see, he just kind of took it easy. how much does he need to play. they'll play him lightly.
>> i don't know. i haven't actualed talked to coach about preseason schedule. i'm okay, either or. i'm talking plays. doesn't want me to play or whatever. it doesn't mean anything. >> i would agree with him about that the. they signed a buddy of his today to point guard. he played with him in miami. he gets a chance to make the team out of training camp. still no deal with j. r. smith. >> and still no win on -- i don't know if i for the browns yet. >> you may have pointed that out.

>> reporter: at issue, a totally legal tax loophole that may have made it possible for trump to use the nearly billion dollar loss to avoid paying taxes for 18 years. >> what would be the effect of having nearly a billion dollars in losses? >> you could have about nearly a billion dollars of income in the next 15 years and not pay tax on them because you could just use the losses to wipe it out. >> reporter: but nothing illegal about doing it? >> well, it's not illegal to be a bonehead. it's n use $916 million. it's stupid, embarrassing, but it's not illegal. >> reporter: the massive loss may have come as a result of deep trouble in multiple trump businesses in the late 1980s and '90s. >> donald trump's businesses, a lot of them hit the rocks. casinos filing for bankruptcy. the plaza filing for bankruptcy. a lot of red ink out of these companies. people lost their jobs.
he could use to his advantage. saying tonight, it all-adds to his qualification to be president. >> i understand the tax laws better than almost anyone, which is why i am one who can truly fix them. i'm working for you now, i'm not working for trump. >> reporter: but tax experts tell us mr. trump's published tax plans wouldn't eliminate any of these provisions, it would make it more favorable for real estate developers like himself. >> cynthia mcfadden, thank you. also under fire, the trump foundation. new york's attorney general ordering to cease and desist fundraising in the state because it's not properly registered. it has 15 days to comply. something trump on said to veterans about vrtss has many outraged by hillary clinton takes new aim over his taxes. we have it all covered starting with nbc's katy tur. >> reporter: donald trump's foundation ordered to cease and desist by the new york attorney general.
